Madonna Wishes Herself a Happy Father’s Day, Snubs Her Kids’ Dads Including Guy Ritchie and Carlos Leon


Madonna wished herself a happy Father’s Day yesterday on Instagram. She snubbed the biological fathers of all her children, starting with Carlos Leon and Guy Ritchie, with whom she actually had children. She also adopted David Banda from Malawi with Ritchie. Her three adopted daughters all have fathers in Malawi, and maybe even mothers. But in Madonna’s mind, she gets credit for everything. Extraordinary. I don’t know about the men in Africa, but Leon and Ritchie, by all accounts, have been perfectly fine fathers. The African fathers maybe should get credit for being big enough to allow their kids a better life. Happy Father’s Day to them.
